The Tadelakt Plaster Course teaches participants how to achieve the beautiful, water repellent tadelakt finishes for use in wet rooms and bathrooms.
Our approach is to create a relaxed environment where you will enjoy learning, with ample opportunity for discussion throughout the day and during breaks. Course numbers on the Tadelakt Plaster Course are limited to 7 people to ensure individual attention to each course participant.
For each session there is a step-by-step demonstration by one of our experienced, specialist plasterers. Participants have a range of boards and terracotta pots to practice themselves, with guidance at hand throughout. A range of colours, finishing soaps, lustres and micas are available for crating unique tadelakt finishes. Sample boards can be taken home at the end of the course.
All tools, materials and personal protective equipment (PPE) for the Tadelakt Plaster Course are provided for on the day.
Once the course is completed, our support does not end there. Our knowledgeable and helpful technical sales team can be called upon for troubleshooting and guidance on your individual projects. We can also supply samples for colour matching schemes to ensure the colour is correct before committing to orders.
All materials and tools are available for purchase at the end of the Tadelakt Plaster Course, and participants will be entitled to a 10% discount on all future purchases from our range of Moroccan style tadelakt, and associated tools and materials.
A 10% discount is available when booking the Tadelakt and Polished Plaster courses together.
